On April 20, the quiet grounds of TekLinks' home office will transform into Birmingham's tech epicenter for Bytes & Bites 2017 Technology Solution Summit.

More than 1,000 business professionals, techies, and friends will gather at 201 Summit Parkway in Birmingham for TekLinks' most fun and informative tech event of the year. And, thanks to generous sponsors, it's all free to the public.

The first 500 early registrants will receive a Yeti-style rambler lowball.

Did we mention the food?

Bytes & Bites began years ago as a simple company event and has grown into a nationally recognized technology summit. "Cisco has been a platinum level sponsor for the TekLinks annual Bytes & Bites Solution Summit for the last 10 years,"  says Cisco National Partner Account Manager Idan Matos. "This is by far the largest customer event in the South! We wouldn’t miss it for the world, and you probably shouldn’t either.” Cisco, Citrix, Microsoft, and VMware representatives will share the latest in IT trends. "Microsoft is giving tips on how to harness IoT (Internet of Things) to transform your business while Cisco is presenting demos on cutting-edge technology like the Spark Board," says TekLinks' Anna Schnell.
